  1. I've heard that as well but it kind of smells like a marketing spin to me, like there have been many. I remember a few times early in the season when Russell just took the initiative with strategy. It didn't always play out, but when it did, it was later explained as Hamilton being 'unlucky' rather than Russell taking a risk that paid off. See: Miami.
  2. What I'd really like to know if all Swiss people naturally come across as grade A conmen or it's just something that comes with being a sports administrator.
  3. Just the recent beers I've had: Brouwers (Holland; 4.8%) - The home brand lager of the largest Dutch supermarket chain, Albert Heijn. At around 3 euros for a sixpack it's way cheaper than almost any other beer, and most Dutch beer is actively worse, so actually decent bang for buck. It's actually brewed by Grolsch apparently, which would explain why it's not awful. Still, a pretty inoffensive lager that is really only enjoyable when properly cold, or when you have had too many beers to give a crap. 5/10. Peroni Nastro Azzuro (Italy; 5.1%) - I actually used to quite like this beer because it was what we call here 'doordrinkpils' - beer that you can keep drinking without getting too drunk or getting a bad taste in your mouth. But it's like they changed something about the recipe recently because it now carries the flavor of old newspapers. At like 7-8 euros for a sixpack, it's also pretty expensive. 4/10. Birra Moretti (Italy; 4.6%) - Just a nice, standard pilsener that goes pretty well with hot weather. It has a bit of a richer, heavier flavor than the previous 2 beers, almost as if it has more alcohol (which it doesn't). Basically what I buy when I don't know what else to get. It's a little cheaper than Peroni I think, at like 6-7 euros for a sixpack. 6/10. Lost Lager (UK [though it might be actually brewed in Germany]; 4.5%) - A few months ago I got this beer randomly with my supermarket order, and ever since then it's my go-to beer. It's crisp, fresh, and doesn't have any weird aftertaste. It's pretty much perfect for someone like me who heavily prefers pilseners. Before I drink it, I prefer to take it out of the fridge, put it in the freezer along with a drinking glass, and leave it there for 15 minutes). It's from BrewDog, which is one of those edgy companies with a kind of cringy marketing angle, but I don't really care about that stuff as long as the beer is good. It's not the cheapest beer, though, at about 5.50 euros for a 4-pack of 440ml cans. 9/10.
  4. It's comfy background noise at least. But some of the initial matches are horrible anyway. And to think the number of countries will get increased the next tournament. Really looking forward to Trinidad & Tobago vs. Mongolia.
  5. I expect Red Bull to be the favorites next year as well, just with less distance to the rest of the field. Ferrari for now don't have a team capable of fighting for a championship and I doubt that'll change in 100 days. Mercedes will probably be a lot closer. I'm really curious though what will happen there in terms of the driver order. Normally Lewis is still the faster driver, but if Russell can hold on to the consistency he showed through the first half of 2022, he'll be tough to beat in the same car.
  6. Started healing a high-end pvp group in Elder Scrolls Online. Really fun.
  7. He didn't win a race this year but the fact that he managed to get at least one win from 2007 until 2021 is absolutely bonkers. I'm sure he'll nab a few victories again next year.
  8. I think it was a good moment for him to leave the sport, but it'll also be weird going into an F1 season without him.
  9. IQ 6/10 – I can't do math EQ 8/10 – I'm very good at reading people socially though not as great at behaving in a socially desirable manner Stress management 2/10 – Always stressed Handy around the house 2/10 – Didn't get my dad's genes for this one Anger management 1/10 – Related to stress management I guess Humour 8/10 – I'm a proper comedian m8 Public speaking 7/10 – Pretty good at it, though I don't enjoy it in the slightest Honesty 9/10 – I have an overtuned sense of guilt which forces me to be more honest than I should Materialistic 8/10 – I like stuff Jealousy 9/10 – There's probably something wrong with me
  10. Being vocal about German politics while living in Switzerland to avoid taxes. In any case, he was/is a great driver and I'm glad he got into the points on his last showing. For the past 2 years he didn't get a car of the calibre that he deserves, so I think it was the right moment to move on to bigger things.
  11. I think it's always been pretty apparent from their body language that they genuinely don't like each other, and that manifests itself on track from time to time.
  12. He did the same thing in 2015 with Toro Rosso, no real surprise here.
  13. An exciting race for once! Great win by Russell. I still had to do a double take when I realized he hadn't gotten a win yet. Max should've let Checo through, but let's be honest, he was never gonna do that. It's harsh but that mentality is also why he's a 2x world champion.
